Employment professionals know that the staffing industry is a primary indicator of economic turnaround. As a leading local staffing provider in northern Nevada, we are getting a solid workout! Many employers are seeing a noticeable increase in business. After the 2009 reduction in force, they no longer have the staff to meet demands, yet they are hesitant to bring on full-time staff. Flexibility is a strong motivator to partner with a staffing service.
According to the American Staffing Association there were more new temporary jobs in December than in any comparable period in the past 20 years. The latest job numbers released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that temporary help employment increased by 2.5%, seasonally adjusted, from November to December. Although other sectors continued to lose jobs at a slower pace than before, temporary help services was one of few industries that continued to add jobs.
